Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $275. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $350.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Sunshine - 10 Year Old Female
Hi everyone! I’m Sunshine, but my foster mom calls me baby girl because I’m so adorable. They tell me I’m 10 years old, but I don’t know what they are talking about, I think I’m 5. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is playing ball. I make it really easy on you, you can just bounce it off the wall and I will catch it and bring it back to you! It’s so fun!
I love to be inside and just be with you whenever I can. I love my foster mom, but I love my dad even more, he stays home with me a lot and we get to hang out. I have proven to be great in the house and have never touched anything that wasn’t mine. I did try counter surfing once, but I got in trouble, so I don’t do that anymore. I will sleep in your bed if you let me, but my foster parents don’t like this, so they taught me to sleep in my own bed.
I barked a lot when I first came, I was nervous and frustrated. Now, I rarely bark cause I’m so comfy in my foster home. I need an extra special family, who will love me a lot. I have allergies, so I need special care, and I may be allergic to cats, so no cats. I want someone who will give me exercise and play ball with me. I’m really a good dog, just need lots of love.
From the foster parents: Sunshine needs good structure and boundaries. She is well behaved, but may challenge you at first. She knows sit, stay, down, drop it, “NO”, and takes food from your hand gently. (She does not always take the ball so gently though, she gets really excited). She would do better with a family without small children.
Ashton - 5.3 Year Old Male
Bark Woof! Ashton here, you can call me Mitch like my previous owners did! I am a bigger boy, about 90-95#, and 6 yrs old. I am goofy and like to rough house with my foster sister Storm. I prefer medium to larger dog friends so I can really play at full speed, Storm is about 40# and she fits the bill nicely! I am not a huge fan of cats based on my reaction when I see strays in or around my foster’s yard. I know commands like sit and down, and like pretty much any treat you will give me. That said, I have not counter-surfed or stolen any food off my foster parent’s plates. Now that I’ve been at my fosters for a few weeks my 4 foster siblings and I have gotten the hierarchy down and we all get along great. I am very loving and submissive with my foster parents, I’ll get up on the couch and snuggle with them if they allow it and anytime I see a free hand I am more than willing to put my head under it for scratches!! I’ve been put in the laundry room with a bed and some toys (no kennel) for up to 8 hrs as a test and have passed with flying colors, no fits, accidents or damage to my fosters home! I use the dog door no problem too.
Overall, I would fit well best in a home with older kids and a secure yard so I don’t come face to face with kittiesJ. I have been said to be touch and go with certain kids, so I definitely would like to meet yours before I join your family. I have done just fine with boys who have had large dogs before, but I have gotten a bit anxious with a few girls who seemed a bit scared of me. I would do just fine with siblings for me to play with, medium to larger breed dogs maybe best. I may need some time to get adjusted but after I get comfortable with my new siblings there shouldn’t be any issues. I am used to having a dog door so I can do my business as I please, but have proven to be able to hold my business for 8hrs no problem if necessary! I look forward to meeting you and becoming yours forever!
Jeannette - 8.1 Year Old Female
Jeanette (Duchess to her foster parents) is a sweet loving girl. She loves toys and walks around with a stuffed animal in her mouth.
She knows some basic commands...sit, lay down, shake, etc...and is good in the car and on a leash. She also comes when called.
Her fosters believe she will do best in a home without small children and where she can be the dominant (or only) dog.
Jefferson - 1.9 Year Old Male
Jefferson is getting settled in his foster home. Check back for updates!
Henna - 6.9 Year Old Female
Hi! I’m Henna and I like warm hugs. No, seriously, I really do hug my humans. Foster mom says I’m super sweet and wicked smart, and she’s right! I love to learn new things and go on exciting adventures. I love my people most of all and really like to hang out with them. In fact, I love my people SO much I get anxiety when I’m left alone but I’m working on it and it’s getting easier. I get along great with other dogs, cats and kids and I will play with anything willing to play with me. My perfect home would have another dog (or two) to play with and help keep me calm when you’re gone, which won’t be long, right?
I really am a low-maintenance lady who will never tell her real age. My life started anew when I was rescued. My boo-boos have healed, my heart worms are gone, and I feel like a young pup again, ready to start my new life. Because I’m a lady, I know where business is done (outside), the crate is for when you leave and is a happy place, and which toys are for chewing and which are for your feet. I know how to walk nicely on a leash, ride calmly in the car, and most importantly, take treats ever so gently. I love the treats and occasionally I look on the counter for a morsel left behind.
Now don’t get the impression I’m a slug, I love to go for daily walks and sometimes I run along side the bike. Exercise helps keep my lady-like figure, right now I’m about 80 pounds of sweet, sweet chocolate. In my spare time, I enjoy being outside in the company of squirrels, if I can’t be outside, I’d like to see outside please (to monitor the squirrels, of course).
Momma says a home that can provide structure and consistency would be best (and don’t forget a dog sibling). I just need a little extra TLC as I transition to my new life, but in return, I promise to be your loyal companion and a perfect lady with a lifetime of unconditional love and warm hugs.
Samm - 1.5 Year Old Male
Hello, I’m Samm and I am so ready to find me the best fit for a forever family! You see, I’ve been adopted twice and it just didn’t work out. I am vibrant and energetic like an Ever-Ready bunny. I don’t seem to run out of energy until bedtime. I’m a youngster at 1 ½ years old. I am tall, lean, and handsome and have quite a personality! I think I would feel comfortable with a 6 ft. fence, because I am a great jumper and don’t want any temptations! (Just because I can jump doesn’t mean I will… I mean if life is great at your home, why would I want to leave???)
Here are some of my good qualities along with some challenges that I have. I recently learned I can swim but I still need help getting in the water. Not quite as confident as I would like. Retrieving tennis balls is my favorite game. Don’t like to give up the ball though and I am strong! Looks like the most consistent thing that I do is take care of my business outside. Whew! I am learning to stay quiet in the crate. Usually, I am vocal about having to stay in that box! Please don’t leave me there for hours and hours. Looks like I am walking on the leash a little better. I need lots of practice and a good supportive collar.
I need you to know that I get along better with other dogs if they will play with me! I will play and chew bones with them but really like some roughness, some nibbling, and lots of running. My foster sister is fast but I tower over her. I wear her out! My foster brother is older and doesn’t want to be bothered.
Any strong pack leaders out there? My foster mom says in order for me to stay healthy and become mature I need help from a human leader to show me how to manage my high spirited side. She tells me it’s a beautiful sight to see me calm and eager to please. I tend to be demanding but I am very motivated when I get morsels for my good behavior. I do well when I play several times and day and need a special human to play with me and teach me safe ways to handle the ball.
Gotta wrap this up! So if you are interested see my fantastic pics. You and your family will be the best fit for me if you are ready to be attentive to my need for structure and boundaries and keep me focused on my goals. Know that I must have exercise several times a day and it would be great to have a doggie companion. If the home has kids they need to be at least 10yrs. old. I definitely want a big yard to exert my energy. Last thing but most important…give me lots of TLC daily!
Charro - 2.4 Year Old Male
I'm such a gentle, sweet, handsome fellow - no idea how I ended up in that shelter! I'm house-trained, and am good with other dogs and children. I love being near my humans, and think the couch and any available bed are mine. I get a little nervous being left alone for a long time, so I would do best with someone who works from home, or is retired. If you're looking to add a sweet, handsome dude to your family, come meet me!
Adelaide - 9.3 Year Old Female
Hello! Adelaide's foster mom here. I usually write a cute story from the dog's point of view, but Adelaide is so great I truly wanted to tell it from my own heart. Adelaide (we call her Addy) is one of the sweetest, happiest dogs we have ever fostered. She is, to put it simply, just wonderful. Adelaide is always, and I mean ALWAYS wagging her tail. If she sees you across three rooms, she'll wag her tail, if she hears you in her sleep, she wags her tail. She will follow you everywhere, but not in an overly clingy way. She just wants to sit quietly next to you and wag her tail in hopes of a pat on the head or a scratch behind the ear. Her shelter paperwork guessed her age around nine, but she's pretty spry for that age. She still likes to chase squirrels in the yard and hop up on the couch for a snuggle. Addy absolutely loves snuggles. And she is an excellent kiss-giver. Adelaide is both potty and crate trained. She is smart and knows sit and down. Adelaide had heartworms and a bacterial skin infection, but she has been treated for both and is healing nicely. She is missing a small amount of fur on her tail and it may not ever grow back, but that doesn't matter because you can't tell in the blur of all the wagging! We're not sure what Addy's life was like before to find her in such rough shape, but a dog this wonderful deserves a life full of love and relaxation from now on. If you are looking for a lab that loves cuddles and is as sweet as pecan pie, then apply now to give Addy her very deserving furever home!
May - 2.1 Year Old Female
May (Tater) is a sweet girl who is good with other dogs. Weighing around 50 pounds, she is a true “rescue” pup from a breeder facility and is very shy and timid. We lovingly call her Tater as she is very content laying on the coach or hang out in her crate.
She has learned basic commands (sit and is working on “stay”), walks really well on a leash and is submissive by nature. She will do well with a calm, easy going family with patience in willing to help her transition to normal family life.
While a couch potato at heart, she does like running around the neighborhood while I bike around the block. She knows how to share and gets along with our Labs and dogs in the neighborhood. Her ideal home will be a patient loving home willing to work with her and teach her self-confidence and build her trust.
Chandra - 2.2 Year Old Female
This 3 legged champion is looking for a forever best friend!
This enthusiastic girl would love to go everywhere with you! This young girl jumps right in the car and loves to ride; she’s great on a leash, loves all people and kids, enjoys hiking and walks. A true retriever, she loves to fetch toys (and sometimes shoes) and bring them back to you! When the day is done she’ll get right in her crate at night after a fun day with you! Chandra is food motivated and wants to please you-so she’s super easy to train. Chandra needs a proper introduction to a new dog friend - if there’s food involved, it’s all hers. She’s two years young and ready for a family!
Cody - 4.2 Year Old Male
Hi there! I see you noticed my picture, I’ve been told I’m quite handsome, but there is so much more to me than my good looks! My name is Cody; I’m full of energy and I LOVE my cuddles. I am 4 years old, but I still have some of my puppy energy! I am a big 80 pound boy with striking golden eyes and a tail that never stops wagging.
I don’t mean to brag, but you know, I keep overhearing my foster momma talking about me to her friends and she definitely thinks I’m the bee’s knees! She says I’m the ideal dog for home security, because while I almost never bark, I always bark when I hear someone unknown come near my door.
I have only met a few tiny humans on our walks. They seem pretty cool and I was calm around them. If you have tiny humans, let’s meet and see how we do together. I know I’d be just fine with kiddos that aren’t tiny though.
I would do great in a home with or without other dogs. I love all dogs and those cute little fluff balls- cats I think they’re called? I would also be fine being the only dog, more attention for me!
I love going on walks with my foster momma. I don’t pull on the leash and I’m really good at staying right next to you or just a little out in front. If you have a yard for me to play in that would be just so cool, but foster momma makes up for her lack of yard by taking me on walks and I do just fine with that!
Let’s see, what else, I am pretty awesome at fetch. I will chase after my toy or ball and bring it right back to you- because I want to keep playing of course! I haven’t had one single accident in foster momma’s house, and I only chew on my toys and bones.
I’m perfectly happy hanging out in my crate, I go in when I’m asked to and I never bark or whine! I know some basic commands- I’m good at sit and shake, and I’m pretty good at lay down and stay but need some more practice. I love to cuddle on the couch and in bed too if I’m allowed, and I don’t care what anyone says- I most definitely will fit in your lap!
I guess I’d better wrap this up since I know you’re just itching to call my people so you can come meet me! Pick me to be your loyal fur-ever friend! I will stick with you and I really need someone who will stick with me too and give me a home and family I can stay with forever! See you soon!
Madge - 4.2 Year Old Female
I am Madge, but in a former life I was Maggie and I respond to that. I am a calm girl except when I am uncertain where I am or you are and then I have a puppy bark to let you know I need you to tell me where you are so I can get my bearings. I like toys to chew but don’t chew anything I am not supposed to. I like to play fetch but I need things that make noise as I have progressive retinal atrophy and am almost blind. I can still see the sunlight reflecting on the pool in the afternoon from my foster mom’s bedroom which is important as I am an expert swimmer.
I love people, kids of all ages and other dogs. I'm not sure about cats as my foster mom does not have a cat for me to try out and see how I feel.
I was found straying and taken to the shelter and not claimed back; I have very good manners and am house trained.
I am very keen on my food but am a trim 57lbs as I work off the calories in the pool - did I say how expert a swimmer I was?
So more on my eyes – I have a genetic condition that causes blindness between the ages of around 6 and 8 years old and there is no treatment for it other than some eye drops to prevent my eyes getting sore. Otherwise I am fit and well. I actually manage very well if I am in a familiar place and mapped my foster moms house and yard in about 48 hours. I only get confused if she moves stuff around too much. When I am in a new place I bump into everything for the first time but at home you would never know I could not see. I mapped the pool really really quickly – did I mention how much I like to swim?
Madge (Maggie) is an energetic, petite lady who loves to swim above all else. She has done great left at home with other dogs for company but would likely get a little stressed at long separation on her own. She is house trained and vocal when she needs to go out. She gets nervous when there are strange noises in the house like contractors or the handyman and can be a bit vocal when stressed. She is slightly thunder phobic but it is mainly about the loud and unexpected noise when it starts. She rides great in a car and we are working on leash walking leash outside of familiar territory can be a bit all over the place. Madge adores swimming above all.
Mariella - 2.2 Year Old Female
Hi! I'm Mariella. I'm a happy girl that loves hugs and snuggles. I'm also a very high energy girl. My foster mom says walks are important to me. I will do my best to learn to walk nicely on the leash. I'm crate trained and love to play with toys. I especially like bones and tennis balls. I get along great with other dogs both large and small. But I don't like cats. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
Anais - 3.2 Year Old Female
I'm Anais, but I'll answer to Annie, and I'm a sweet three year old black female. I was recently spayed and had all necessary vaccinations taken care of. I only weighed 50 pounds when they found me, but I'm putting on weight and eating well and I'm healthy now.
I love to run and play and chase squirrels and I am good with other dogs and kids. I still have a lot of energy so I need room to run and/or long walks. I love to chase the tennis ball too… it's my favorite!
I'm working on house/potty training, and I’m almost there but I still need some help. I'm otherwise good in the house with no chewing tendencies.
I love to snuggle and will make a good couch/lap dog, and I love to sleep next to the bed at night. I am afraid of thunder so I need somebody to cuddle with during storms.
I'm a fun happy little girl looking for a good home and somebody to play with.
Jenkins - 4.2 Year Old Male
Hi- My name is Jenkins and I am a cute mini lab. I weigh only 60 lbs. and I am a love bug. I have just finished my heart worm treatment so I am feeling much better.
I am in a foster home with a foster lab bro and a real 10 year old boy. I get along great with everyone and fit right in around the house. I am pretty easy going. I love to be petted and loved on and I like to follow you around. I will “help” pick up socks if you drop them while doing the laundry. I am potty trained, crate trained and I am working on not jumping on people. Playing ball really isn’t my thing but I love to go outside and sit out by the big tree in the backyard and watch the squirrels run around. I can do that for hours. They come check on me every once in a while but I love to sit like a statue just watching the squirrels run around. I am afraid of loud noises so I bark at the vacuum and jump when it thunders. I run to find a person for a cuddle and I am good again. I am a very sweet small boy and would love to find a nice home to settle down in. Now that my heartworm treatment is done, come see me!!!!
Indie - 4.1 Year Old Female
Indie is a sweet, loving dog. She is a bit of a featherweight. Some may call her a pocket lab. She weighs in at 57 pounds. What she lacks in size, she makes up for in heart. Indie came to us with a scar on her ear. Though she made have had a rough life before, she is all about pleasing her owners.
Indie lives with 3 young boys from 1-7 years of age. The 1 year old likes to hug and pull on her some times. She is very patient and sweet with him. They love to nap with her. She gets an A+ for cuddling! She does love to counter surf from time to time so keep those treats up high. No crumb goes untouched on the floor. We have her pretty well crate trained. She will not whine once she is in there. When she is out of the crate Indie will be your shadow. There are never too many pets to be had.
Indie would be great for any family, big or small. She lives to please. Give her a chance and she will steal your heart!
Zalia - 3.1 Month Old Female
Zalia was the infamous puppy #3, she struggled the hardest to get well and we thought we were going to lose her more than once. Since home she has been slow to catch her sisters in gaining weight but she now holds her own at dinner time and lets her sisters know if they get too close. She the calm thinker of the bunch and always up for cuddle time. Zalia is also happy to join me on a raft floating in the pool. Zalia is in the process of learning to potty outside.
Sweet Zalia is one of the "Z" puppies that fought and survived the parvovirus with the help of all of our fantastic donors. Healthy now, she will soon be available for adoption soon however be advised she will only have had one DHPP vaccine and cannot be taken out in public until one week after her 3rd vaccine.
Zenia - 3.1 Month Old Female
Zenia is the happy go lucky girl. You can tell her from across the yard as she trots about smiling as if she is ever grateful for each new day. Zenia is also the Diva of the bunch with a definite shoe fetish. No matter where you leave them she will find them, of course, and then let her sister steal them away! Zenia is in the process of learning to potty outside.
Sweet Zenia is one of the "Z" puppies that fought and survived the parvovirus with the help of all of our fantastic donors. Healthy now, she will soon be available for adoption however be advised she will only have had one DHPP vaccine and cannot be taken out in public until one week after her 3rd vaccine.
Sheryl - 2.6 Year Old Female
Sheryl, aka Lucky, is a sweet girl. It takes her a bit to warm up to humans and other dogs but once she feels comfortable, she will be a loving, constant companion. She's so laid back and easy to take care of. She is house trained and hasn't had any accidents with her fosters. She's been treated for heartworms and has spent the past five weeks resting. Sheryl "Lucky" is ready to meet her forever family and begin the next phase of her life. She will do best with a family that has someone at home with her during the day to keep her company. She's not fond of being confined in a cage and has learned how to become a Houdini escaping from her cage if left for longer periods of time.
Miller - 2.1 Year Old Male
Hi! My name is Miller and I was told you would like to know something about me. I am approximately two years old. My foster mother says I am super endearing and a very good boy. All I know is that I like it when she kisses me on the head and tells me how sweet I am.
Since coming to my foster home, I’ve learned about walking on a leash and now I’m better at it although I do get really excited when I see other dogs so I need to keep practicing. I’m super easy to have around the house as I’m quite content to take a nap while everyone is busy doing their own thing. I also love to play! One of my favorite games is tug-of-war and it is hard for me to not get too excited because it is so much fun. I’m pretty curious, too. In fact, my foster mom thinks I’m a little like Curious George from one of her favorite childhood books. But, once I know my boundaries, I’m willing to leave your things alone if I have my own things to keep my attention. And, apparently, I’m a really quick learner because I’m eager to please. I know how to potty outside and I don’t mind sleeping in my crate.
My foster mom says that in my forever home it would be good if we could take lots of walks and play quite a bit. But once I’ve gotten to exercise, I’m happy to simply hang out with you.
Zaden - 3.1 Year Old Male
Hello everyone! My name is Zaden, and I'm a little over 3 years old. I'm not a big guy, just kinda leggy and tall, so if you want to feed me a little extra kibble, I won't mind! I really like playing with toys, especially that rope thing. I can whip that around like nobody's business. I'm learning how to play ball with my foster mom, and I like that too. I also like shoes, and not to wear. You probably should put them somewhere until I learn that those are not mine. I do know some commands. I'm good at sit, shake, and lay down. I also know that I am supposed to sleep on my bed, and not on my foster mom's bed. I am good in the car and enjoy looking out the window. Any window, that's like dog TV. I do ok in the crate, and won't complain too much. I also like to go for walks, but if I see a squirrel, hang on tight! I have a foster brother right now and we get along great. I think it would be best if you didn't have cats. I love people and I can't wait to be loved by you. I'm looking forward to meeting you and I hope you pick me so I can finally have my forever home.
Cayman - 7 Month Old Female
Loves to play and run! Tug of war is her favorite game to play with other dogs. Great with cats. She can sit before her meal, loves to go through the doggy door. Does well in her kennel as long as she has a toy with her. Also she loves to play in the rain. Great with kids and potty trained.
Ivanna - 5.1 Month Old Female
Ivanna is a sweet four month old pup who loves to play! She walks great on the leash, shares her toys and is an all around happy girl. She loves to go to the dog park to play with other dogs and is great with everyone she has met so far. She is crate trained and has had no accidents in the house. She will stay in the crate when we leave but much prefers to sleep at night on her dog bed close by. She would be great for an active family or someone who wants to bring her along on adventures.
Bates - 6.9 Month Old Male
Bates loves to play and has lots of energy. He loves to follow people and gets along with other dogs. He is currently getting settled with his foster family, so please check back as he will be available for adoption soon.
Katie - 7.9 Year Old Female
Katie is such a sweet, loving girl and I can't wait for you to meet her. Katie is chocolate lady, medium size at 76 pounds and is almost 8 years old but don't let her age fool you...it's just a number! Katie is mature but she has energy and spunk and loves walks, playing fetch and swimming. We have two dogs and a cat and Katie gets along great with them. She does pull a bit on the leash but does fine with correction and certainly will improve with consistent training. Katie is perfect lady in the house and sleeps on the floor beside the bed at night.
Katie does best with slow introductions to new people and she's a love bug afterwards. However, young children make her skittish so her new family should not have young kids. Katie dines with the other dogs just fine but she wants to make sure no one takes her food so meal time should be monitored.
I can't wait to have you meet this sweet lady!
Kerns - 2.9 Year Old Male
Hi Kerns here, but just call me George. I'm one handsome fellow I have to admit.
I'm a perfect houseguest too. I just hang out while my foster family is away. We have a dog door so If it's not too hot for me, I'll go to the gate and watch the world go by. I love other dogs especially all my foster siblings. Even grouchy old Molly who's always snapping at me. I just ignore her. The puppies are allowed to run in the yard now and they love chasing me, that is so fun!!
I have also learned to swim in the pool but reserve that for those really hot days when my foster parents insist on being outside.
We have a couple cats and boy do I love to chase them when they run. Sierra cat gets under the car and I try to stare her down and whine at her, not sure why she's not impressed with me!
I walk on a leash pretty decently. When I pull too much I'm corrected easily because I like to please. I also reserve my barking for times when I really need to do so.
One thing I'm not too impressed with is small children. They and their friends create a lot of chaos and noise and that stresses me out too much. See I'm more of a chill guy and a snuggler. I really prefer the adult humans and the older kiddos in all honesty.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I sleep in the bedroom with the humans and my foster siblings. They have a crate in the bedroom with a bed in there for me and I sleep in it with the door open.
I'm now interviewing for my new forever home and look forward to meeting you. Until then......
Argento - 7.8 Year Old Male
Springtime is a good time for a new family member. Even though I'm not "new", I would still be a great companion. I am an unusual color, a beautiful silver/brown, which makes me quite unique. That's were my name Argento comes from. I love, love belly rubs and lounging around. I have a foster brother right now, and we get along just fine. If you already have one of my kind, it probably would be best if he was older, too. I'd really love to actually be your one and only. I like walks and I'm pretty good on the leash. I get a little excited when I see other dogs and bark a little, but I'm just talking for a minute. I'm crate trained, and also can be trusted in the house. My foster mom took me to play ball and I even brought it back to her! She was so happy, but I didn't get the big deal. I was with a different foster family, (they had to move), and they had children and a cat, which was no problem for me. I did battle with a little cancer, but I'm feeling fine and ready to find my forever family to love, and to be loved.
Paula - 1.2 Year Old Female
Hi, I'm Paula! When I was brought to the DFW Lab Rescue, they discovered I had a pelvic fracture so I spent a lot of time resting. Now, I'm a healthy, energetic puppy. I love playing with all dogs and I am submissive. I enjoy playing with my new foster brother, Strait, and another foster brother Max. A home with an active dog might suit me best!!
If you will let me, I will be more than happy to lay on your lap even though I am a big girl. I also like to sleep under the covers; my foster mom thinks I act like a cat, I just like to stay warm. When my foster parents leave the house, they put me in a crate so I can relax while they are gone. I am lucky because my foster parents spend a lot of time working from home so I do not spend a lot of time in the crate. I need a home that has as much energy as I do and understands puppy play from aggression. Small kids might find me too rough unless they have been around large active puppies. Mom says it's good that I don't jump on small kids but sometimes I can get excited and I might slip up. It would benefit me if my new family would take us to training classes. I'm willing to learn if you will be consistent and put the time and effort in to train me. Foster mom has been taking me to the dog park daily and I really enjoy it. So if you consider bringing me into your family; occasionally, doggy daycare and trips to the dog park would be a good idea, if I'm an only dog!

Teva - 1.5 Year Old Female
Teva is getting settled in her foster home. Check back for updates!
Adler - 1.9 Year Old Male
My name is Adler and I am a very friendly and playful giant. I am a yellow boy 1.5 years old weighing in at 78lbs and I am a true heartthrob. I was born with hydrocephalus. Some people say I have "water on the brain". You won't see my condition holding me back though; I am a very happy dog with lots of spirit, grit and personality. I go on walks, swim, wrestle with my foster brothers, and lounge around in the sun; I just love being outside. I have some sight issues but don't worry, you only have to show me the food and water bowl once. I rely on my foster brothers as my companions and guide dogs. They are my best friends and they love to help guide me through the house. I like to sleep in my foster parents bedroom at night but I can sleep in my crate during the day. My foster family says I am a joy to have around and can't wait for me to meet my forever family and new siblings.
Even though I have a "condition", I play like any normal happy two year old lab. I'm full of joy and ready to share it with my new family. There are special needs people, and there are special needs dogs. That's what I am. But I don't think I really have any special needs..... I just need a special family to love me!
Bozley - 6.3 Year Old Male
Hello I’m Bozley. I’ve been on the sidelines for the past couple of weeks taking it easy from the heartworm treatment that the vet gave me. Those are pesky things to get rid of. They slowed me down there for a while but I’m back to my old playful self now. I’m not sure what went wrong at my first home. I’m pretty sure that I wasn’t thrown out for misbehaving or anything like that. Maybe I wandered off chasing a squirrel and, with little fanfare, I was lost. I’ve tried to remember but it’s all a blur. Temporary amnesia? Whatever the reason, I was soon picked up by the animal shelter and charged with vagrancy since I had no ID or means of support. Luckily those wonderful DFW Lab Rescue people found me at the homeless shelter and took me in. I am so grateful to them for giving me a second chance. I love my foster parents and foster brother Corky. I’ve got a lot of good years left in me and I would love to share them with you.
Bozley is the typical easy going, fun loving male lab. He is affectionate and will soak up all of the attention he can get. Bozley will take every step you take. He is energetic but not hyper. He does not have much puppy left in him but he does like to chase a ball and will keep your property squirrel free. He requires moderate but regular exercise to keep him happy. He prefers to nap most afternoons. Bozley likes all kids but would probably do better with older kids. He gets along fine with other dogs but would also do quite well as an only dog. The most important thing to Bozley is the companionship of humans. With Bozley around, you’ll never be lonely.
Tamale - 5.1 Month Old Female
Tamale here…or you can call me a Mexican Jumping Bean, like foster mom.
I am a happy go lucky girl with big paws. Love being a Lap-a-dor and getting loved on.
In May I was run over by a golf cart that injured my left rear leg and have been healing up. I have showed no pain or discomfort from this event. I won’t be released until the doctors say I am good to go. I love to jump, hence my nick name.
I am a typical puppy that loves to play with other dogs. I have learned to respect other dogs during feeding time. It is hard to stand there and watch them eat after I am done, but I have been getting good at waiting.
There are outdoor cats, but I don’t get to excited when I see them. I just might be a good companion for one.
I am still working on the potty training. If there is a doggy door, I know to go outside. Still learning about how to let humans know that I need to go out to potty if the door is closed.
I know sit, which foster mom makes me do before giving me my food bowl, due to me being so excited to eat.
I have been doing good about leaving the furniture and electric cords alone, but I sometimes like to carry a shoe around. Haven’t eaten one, just played with them.
I sleep in a crate at night and do pretty good. I am let out once during that time to go potty. Would love to sleep with my forever human(s) and snuggle up.
I don’t do a lot of puppy biting, so I might be safe for small humans to play with.
Can’t wait to start the next adventure in my young life and find my forever family. Will you be it?
Jude - 2.8 Month Old Male
Hi, my name is Jude, but my foster Mom calls me "Hey Jude, you don't make it bad, you take a sad day and you make it better...". I don't understand much, but something about a Beetle? But we don't have beetles where I'm staying, they have dogs, kids and lots of squirrel things, which apparently, are rather naughty. I'm not naughty at all. I've heard I'm as sweet as I am smart! So not sure why I was turned into a shelter at four weeks old, but my brothers, the two-legged sort, have told me they're going to find the most perfect family for me. Because I deserve it & I'm one of the "most awesome" puppies they've ever fostered!

Zuzu - 3.2 Month Old Female
Zuzu loves to explore. She has figured out this whole swimming thing getting herself in and out of the pool as she pleases. She a rough and tumble girl who loves to pounce on her unsuspecting sisters. Her favorite game is to grab shoes that her sister has pilfered and run away with them! Zuzu is full of character and has plenty to say especially at mealtime. Growing like a weed, she is the heaviest of the girls. Zuzu is in the process of learning to potty outside.
Sweet Zuzu is one of the "Z" puppies that fought and survived the parvovirus with the help of all of our fantastic donors. Healthy now, she will soon be available for adoption however be advised she will only have had one DHPP vaccine and cannot be taken out in public until one week after her 3rd vaccine.
Modelo - 5.1 Year Old Female
Hi there!! My name is Modelo. I'm a sweet, easy going girl. I enjoy car rides, hanging out on the couch watching Netflix, and following my Mom around the house. Whenever my parents open a car door, I jump in without any prompting. Sometimes they have to pull me back out because they’re only unloading the car and weren’t really planning on taking me anywhere! My favorite show on Netflix is House of Cards. The Underwoods are so ambitious I can’t stop watching! Lastly, my Mom. She walks from room to room and I keep her company. What if she gets lonely in the bedroom folding laundry, or she accidentally drops a snack in the kitchen? I’m a good girl that makes sure none of that happens.
I'm trustworthy around the house! My parents leave me alone during the workday and I’ve never gotten into trouble. Most of the time, they find me hanging out on the couch when they get home. When they first had me, I was crated when they left because I went into my crate really easily but now they don’t crate me at all. At night when they sleep in their bed without sharing it with me (so rude!) I usually choose to sleep in my crate or on the couch.
My parents think I’m so well behaved because I’m not a puppy anymore… but that doesn’t mean I don’t have any spunk in me! I love walks and try chasing squirrels whenever I can. I think I’ve grown out of chewing toys, although I have been known to occasionally chew on a bone.
I love doggy pals! I pass other dogs with a friendly face. Call me a social butterfly! I might like friends a little too much. I was so eager to meet my doggy neighbors that I tried digging under the fence the first day. A few days in, I only run along the side of the fence but my parents keep a close eye on me to make sure I don't try to go live with my next door neighbors!
Overall I’m a really well behaved lady. Please help me find my very own handsome furever family!
Lover Boy - 2.1 Year Old Male
Hi, my name is Lover Boy. I had a rough start, but I am very lovable, gentle and friendly. I have had some r and r, and I am learning to trust. I am a perfect gentleman, and do not get on furniture or beds or jump up on people. My foster parents say I am very quiet and have never even heard a bark out of me. I am a perfect companion and get along great with kids and non-aggressive dogs. You see I’m a lover not a fighter. I would be so happy with someone that is home most of the time. I am not crate trained, and do not like being confined to a small room when you leave. Please dog proof your home and leave me loose with some toys! I could use some training in basic commands and playing fetch, but I am really good at being lovable. I ride just fine in the car for short distances. I walk right beside you on my leash, and don’t run or pull.
I am such a sweet dog and will make an adoption family very happy! Did I mention I’m lovable?
Josey - 4.1 Year Old Female
Hi everyone, Josey here! Just wanted to let everyone know I’m going to be available really soon. I’m a healthy beautiful chocolate girl. I love water, I love the pool and I love to play in the hose and chase after the water. My foster Mom said it’s a great way to get me some exercise on these hot summer afternoons. I do great in the crate but also do fine having full rein of the house. I am a counter surfer; I ate some cupcakes that were just staring me down the other day… I didn’t think there was anything wrong to eat ALL of them. Hey I even cleaned up all the crumbs so I didn’t leave a mess. My foster Mom now says she has to keep the counters clear. I also walk nicely on my leash. If I see a squirrel I want to chase it, but other than that I don’t pull much. I have a foster kitty in the house and I don’t pay any attention to him… he scares me so I figure it’s best to keep my distance. I love to hang my head out of the window when we are in the car and I haven’t met a dog or human I didn’t like.
This is what my foster Mom says about me: Josey is quite the love bug. She loves to give kisses and be right next to you when you are sitting down. She will come up to you just to get hugs and give you hugs back. If you let her jump in your lap, she would. She is just under 70 lbs but does not seem big. She is calm in the house but loves to walk and play in the water. She sleeps great at night. She knows basic commands and listens well. She is a great girl and would fit well into any family. If you are gone all day, she would need to have a long walk before you left the house. She is not a barker, not even when the door bell rings.
